Center for Baltic Heritage[1]

We were hoping to wrap up this additional project in time for Latvia's 99th, but got delayed while we addressed some unrelated issues, such as changes to retrieving these posts from Facebook. (!) We are privileged to feature a biography of Frīdrihs Briedis, a brilliant military tactician, the first Latvian Rifleman, and among the first to be murdered by the Bolsheviks as he moved to support an independent Latvia.

Our republication features the original booklet as well as a wonderful translation by the late linguist David Guild. 2017 Dec 06
We're excited to bring you a major addition to our site, the official UNRRA report of the history of the Junkers Displaced Persons (DP) Camp, from our original (carbon) copy. 2017 Dec 06
